This reimagined Sleeping Beauty retelling is the perfect novella for single-sitting reading. Wry, dark, and deeply feminist, A Spindle Splintered is the type of story I don't want to spoil. Just read it, closely, and then pass it on to all your friends.

I am a huge fan of this author. Everything they write stops me in my tracks. The essays here will expand your thoughts on feminism and the media we've been consuming since childhood.

If you loved the show FLEABAG, then this book is for you. Funny as hell with some heartbreaking moments. One of the more real mother/daughter relationships I've read in awhile. Perfect book to read to help you get out of a reading slump.
